A Bit of Perspective

Tired of all the healthcare discussion? Tired of hearing about all mr. obama's unconstitutional shenanigans? Tune in to today's show with Arkady Faktorovich and be reminded why it is important to oppose tyranny in all it's guises and why America is worth saving.

A Person is a Person, No Matter How Small

So says Dr. Seuss in Horton Hears a Who. So says God and so say I. Sadly, devastatingly so, there are two Australian "bio - ethicists" who disagree. According to Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva, a newborn baby is no more a person than is an unborn baby. "Merely being human is not in itself a reason for ascribing someone a right to life,"

I would argue that being alive is enough to ascribe someone a right to life. The Declaration of Independence clearly states: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." The pro-death lobby has, for nearly a century now, succeeded in redefining the moment of creation to be some nebulous time after the third month of gestation, rather than the logical and biologically correct moment of conception. For Christians, the Bible says that we are alive and known by God from before conception, but, as we are unable to perceive that existence, we can hardly address it morally or legislatively.

Appalling as this is,and reminiscent of Philip K. Dick's short story "The Pre-Persons", it is not the only attack against the sanctity of human life and the unalienable right to reproduce oneself coming to light in Australia.

Many have argued that Roe v Wade was a slippery slope. A small step along the way towards allowing the government to decide who lives and who dies in total disregard of the individuals God given and unalienable right to life. The argument is that once that slope has been breached, what is to stop the government from deciding who should reproduce and when? Who should be euthanized and when? Who should receive health care and what type and by whom shall it be administered? Since obamacare is currently awaiting a SCOTUS decision on some of these very issues, this opinion, by these two so called "ethicists" seems to come at a good time for the obama administration.

This should alert us to the grave danger the world is currently facing. It is one thing to tolerate such opinions when they are mere exercises in theory, but we are fast approaching a time when they are more than ideological exercises. There is no need to enumerate the many threats to our unalienable rights under obamacare here in the US. We are aware of them, indeed, it would be difficult to be unaware of them if one is at all politically aware. What may not be so evident is that this threat is encompassing more than the US at this point in time.

While we sit back, astonished at such a conclusion by these Australians, it behooves us to look a little deeper. To discover, by what possible mechanism, these two would dare to advance such an opinion, that infanticide is perfectly okay, in a major journal, without some inkling that their opinion would be taken seriously by people in a position to do something about it. As it turns out, they do seem to have been given such an inkling. In an article titled "Children able to consent to sterilisation and 12 year olds to consent to psychosurgery and electroshock without any parental consent in W.A." The government of Australia indicates that it has very little respect for life or parental rights. This is not not law yet, but the parents of Australia have only until the 9th of March(today) to communicate their disagreement to their legislators. (H/T to Ima Iggymom)

Life is sacred. The right to life is unalienable and God given. Every person is intrinsically valuable, priceless and irreplaceable. If this is not to be the underlying premise of our existence, then we are lost. Utterly and inescapably lost as the only known intelligent life in a very wide universe. The sanctity of life must underlie our governments, our societies and our civilizations. Without it, as we have seen in every instance of the atheistic communist/socialist attempts at government, the death toll will be horrific. Even islamic countries, with all of their heinous practices, have not killed as many people as communist/atheist governments.

We have been told for decadess that we are overpopulating the Earth. Such a dire prediction would seem to indicate that measures like infanticide and sterilization are "reasonable" or even "necessary", but I wonder. The numbers coming from studies such as those quoted in Mark Steyn's "America Alone" seem to indicate that our populations are, for the most part, shrinking. I have to wonder if the overpopulation story is just as accurate as the global warming story. (It was global cooling when I was younger btw)

Now is the time to stand up for life, if ever there was one. I do not abandon my fight for the restoration of my nation, but if the sanctity of life is lost, so too is this nation and all others.

"Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations." ~Jer 1:5

R.I.P. Mr. Breitbart

The first time I heard of Andrew Breitbart was when Big Hollywood broke the story of the attempt to "bribe" Hollywood artists into supporting mr. obama's healthcare agenda through turning their work into propaganda for the administration in exchange for NEA grants. In the intervening years, although I have not always agreed with him, I have been impressed by his tenacity, his boldness and his absolutely unapologetic manner when confronting some of the evils of our day.

He will be missed. May God send us another to show us the attitude we need when standing on principle.

Rest In Peace Mr. Breitbart and my condolences to your family and friends.

"For every battle of the warrior is with confused noise, and garments rolled in blood; but this shall be with burning and fuel of fire." ~ Isaiah 9:5
